A letter from the President
Welcome to the BU Business & Technology Club – also known as BizTech. We are very excited for this academic year with new and old members alike, and we guarantee an eventful year. We all share a passion for new and innovative technologies and its impact on the business world. Now more than ever, integrating a digital strategy and investing in new technology is vital to any business in order to stay competitive in this rapidly changing market.
We focus on three goals to support our students. We expose students to the biggest and best companies, careers and technologies in the industry today. We serve to prepare students for the future by giving them the foundations to build their knowledge base through methods they might not find in the classroom. This includes exclusive corporate events, technical learning workshops and outings, and our technology newspaper. We also undertake a semester long project focused on creating improvements throughout the BU IT components affecting students. With the help of BU faculty, we are able to guide our students successfully to create meaningful changes on campus by letting them practice their skills in a supportive environment.
If you are a student interested in joining BizTech, you are more than welcome to attend any of our general meetings or events. You may also email firstname.lastname@example.org or check us out on Facebook to learn more. If you are a company or professional interested in working with us, feel free to email me at email@example.com or firstname.lastname@example.org. On behalf of the Executive Board, I thank you for your interest in BizTech and we hope to see you at one of our events!
